African Star Ace Harris
Atlanta, GA September 29, 2015 PKONEDAY MUSIC COMPANY is proud to announce the release of “African Star”, the first single off Grammy-nominated producer Ace Harris’s solo project, ATLiberia. The much-anticipated single, set for release on Tuesday, September 29, 2015 on SoundCloud (www.soundcloud.com/aceharrismusic), features Sierra-Leonean rapper/writer Lloyd Musa and popular Liberia-based producer/rapper Cypha D'King.  The upbeat song promises to, “Make African dope “ and celebrates the culture, “With my African business, I’m an African Star.  Pulling up to the African club with my African plug.  Give it up for the African DJ for showing an African love.”  African Star launches the beginning of ATLiberia as a sound, a movement, and a lifestyle. 

ATLiberia is an upbeat compilation project exploring the blend of cultures, sounds, and experiences familiar to those in diaspora. The project mixes elements of traditional African music and afrobeats with hip hop and dance and explores themes of identity, love, and cultural celebration.  It’s comparable to Major Lazer’s mash up of dancehall and EDM but with a unique African twist.  In addition to multiple features by Lloyd Musa, ATLiberia features collaborations with the likes of R. City, Verse Simmonds, 2CD Woods, and Laza Morgan.  It is music that embodies the rhythms and textures of Africa and the pulse and heartbeat of diasporic culture.


Ace Harris is an Atlanta native born to Liberian immigrants.  His production credits have topped the Billboard charts and have also been featured on ESPN, MTV, and VH1. He has produced for Nicki Minaj, T.I., Kid Ink, and Lecrae.  He grew up listening to Hip Hop innovators like Timbaland and OutKast as well as soaking up the sounds of afrobeat, high life, and soca.  This unique heritage comes alive in his debut project ATLiberia.  It is music that will entertain, inspire, uplift, and most importantly make you move. Atlanta Raised, Liberian Made: #ATLiberia.  

PK ONEDAY is a music collective, based in Pasadena, California and Atlanta, Georgia. Through the partnership of Brian Taylor and Lasanna “ACE” Harris, the company creates and places music of various genres for commercial release through film, television, and performing artists. The company, also housed the faith based group PK ONEDAY band (named after the company). During the group’s 2 album span, PK ONEDAY band was featured on ESPN’s college baseball and softball playlist, DOVE Award winners, and Grammy nominated for their work on Lecrae’s REHAB album.
